Had not played this course before. Pro shop very friendly, rate was excellent. OK - quite a lot of water, not a problem! However - I should have brought my beach chair! I have never spent so much time in the traps! Good practice though! Beautiful course but noticeably suffering from the mandatory water restrictions. When this course gets the... More

This course is a great and fun layout that meanders through the interesting terrain of Saddle Creek. The drought has been a major problem here and due to excellent management and maintenance the fairways and greens been returned to their historically excellent level. The rough has been "blown-up" and reseeded. Only time will tell if the efforts have been successful.... More

This course is one of the best in Calaveras County. With the drought in it's fourth year, the groundskeepers have done an amazing job in water conservation, yet has kept the fairways and greens in tip top shape. It's an up hill down hill experience but well worth it.

The golf course is well known plus in the clubhouse (which is beautiful) the restaurant "Copper Grill" is a great find. Views of the pond and the golf course - good food - friendly staff - all the right elements for a good meal.

We have come to Saddle Creek for several years and have never been disappointed. The course is an excellent design that wanders through a peaceful and quiet setting; it is so relaxing as to make the irritation of a double bogey or worse seem unimportant. The current drought has had a impact on the course but the management structure and... More

My friend and I had heard good things about the course so we decided to go up there. I found a good deal on TeeOff.com ( recommended) and booked a round . We arrived and found that we literally had the entire course to ourselves! Range balls are included and the range was stocked with about 10 untouched pyramids of... More

This coarse is spectacular. Every hole offers a different challenge in a very scenic, peaceful and majestic setting. Wild life abounds and with several water features and sand traps a challenge for all levels. Multiple tee options also for all skill levels. Alittle dry with drought conditions but still a great destination. About 2 hrs. from Bay Area but worth... More

Played the course in early May 2015 and it was in excellent condition. The setting is beautiful, quiet and the course has adequate challenge. It is a little out of the way if you are traveling I-5 but definitely worth the detour into the Sierra foothills. Staff were very pleasant, courteous; gave us lots of tips on the course as... More
